Menu Monday + Paula Deen’s Influence! {6.22.20}

One of the best things that came out of the COVID-19/Coronavirus months had to be Paula Deen's Quarantine Cooking series on YouTube! It is almost like you're pulling a chair up to her kitchen counter and sipping sweet tea while she cooks in front of you. I've spent a lot of time doing that in… Continue reading Menu Monday + Paula Deen’s Influence! {6.22.20}

Menu Monday + Summertime Sides {6.8.20}

Now that we're basically in summertime, I try to keep supper meals easy and light. I make a main dish, whether it's all meat (steaks) or some kind of one-pan meal (enchiladas, meatball subs) and then use whatever fresh produce I have on hand to go with it. That might be peaches, watermelon, cucumbers, zucchini… Continue reading Menu Monday + Summertime Sides {6.8.20}

Two Week Meal Plan {Menu Monday 4.13.20}

Cooking is so much fun right now! While I'm working from home, I am able to prep meals early in the day or cook things in the oven that would normally take too long for a weekday. It's so nice to make a menu knowing that I'm cooking for both of us every night and… Continue reading Two Week Meal Plan {Menu Monday 4.13.20}

Cooking in Quarantine: Making the Most of your Meat

Meal planning during this current quarantine/meat shortage has brought me back to my newlywed days. 9 years ago we were living on a very tight budget which required me to stretch meat as far as I could.

Two Week Meal Plan {Menu Monday 3.23.20}

"Well that escalated quickly." That phrase applies to SO many things right now, am I right? Normally in March Paul is on the road with sports most evenings, so I plan about two "big" meals each week and then fend for myself the rest of the week. When it's just me, I have a lot… Continue reading Two Week Meal Plan {Menu Monday 3.23.20}

Menu Monday + Paul’s Favorite Dessert {2.24.20}

This is actually more like two week's worth of meals instead of just one week. Sometimes we have weeks where I only end up cooking a couple times instead of 6-7 nights like I planned. I looked back on my planner this weekend and realized I only made 3 out of the seven meals I… Continue reading Menu Monday + Paul’s Favorite Dessert {2.24.20}
